About 21 Royal Highland Fusiliers
21 Royal Highland Fusiliers of Canada Army Cadet Corps (21 RHFC ACC) is open to youth age 12-18. We meet once a week during the school year where you will learn citizenship, leadership, drill, effective speaking, outdoor survival, air rifle shooting, play sports and much more.
Plus, we have additional weekends for bush exercises, competitions, trips and a variety of other fun experiences.
On top of all this, during the summer, cadets have the opportunity to go to a variety of summer camps and expeditions. Courses range from 2 to 7 weeks and include basic training, introductory and advanced courses in leadership and instruction, drill and ceremonial, outdoor adventure, sports and fitness and the Canadian Forces basic parachutist course. There are also international exchanges for select cadets to places like Australia, South Korea and Scotland.
As if this wasn't enough incentive, a number of cadet activities also qualify as community service for school. Can it get any better? Who else gets to have fun AND do their schoolwork at the same time?

For the post I was actually suppose to post right now… As everyone can see, it’s pretty snowy outside. Please wear another pair of shoes to the armoury, and switched into your running shoes to conduct the fitness test so no one slips and hurts themselves on the wet.
